As Outdoor Water Use Spikes, Conserving Water Inside the Home Becomes Critical

HOUSTON - July 20, 2017 // PRNewswire // - It's no surprise that outdoor water use spikes during the summer, mostly because of the need to water lawns. In fact, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency claims that in most areas, homeowners use two to four times as much water than they use the rest of the year in order to help keep lawns lush. With such an increase in outdoor water use, it's important to help conserve water inside the home as much as possible.

Experts from Benjamin Franklin Plumbing®, part of the Direct Energy family of brands with independently owned and operated locations throughout North America, are offering simple updates to help home owners save water. Here are a few summer water conservation tips:

Install aerators on your faucet. This device mixes air with water, which causes you to use less. It's a simple way to conserve water while using your faucets without even thinking about it.

Invest in energy efficient appliances that use less water, like your washing machine or dishwasher.

Double check your plumbing for leaks – either from toilets or faucets. There are a couple different ways to do this, so we suggest calling a local plumber to help determine the best approach for your home.
